The CEF eDelivery building block supports public administrations and private entities to exchange electronic data and documents with other public administrations, businesses and citizens, in an interoperable, secure, reliable and trusted way.

The main objective of this Action is to promote the use of the eDelivery DSI (Digital Service Infrastructures) amongst private and public entities by integrating the AS4 messaging protocol, specifically the CEF eDelivery AS4 Profile, in 6 Access Points by the implementing participants. These Trust Service Providers (TSPs) will also certify their new AS4 PEPPOL AP as part of their Electronic Registered Delivery Services (ERDS) implemented according to the requirements set in the eIDAS Regulation.

The AS4EDI2020 consortium is composed of participants from different Member States, namely Spain, The Netherlands, Italy, and Latvia. This cross-border scenario, the use of PEPPOL network and the 6 parallel implementations will facilitate the interoperability testing and the deployment corresponding to each AP and SMP of this Action. Furthermore, the operation of these APs will benefit a large number of clients from different Member States, including public institutions and companies from several business areas such as retail, manufacturing, tourism, banking, and health sector.
